...only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades (not quite sure why...)
but that's good 'cause pedroia's and youkilis' awesomeness in the ninth last night prevented the sox from being no-hitted for what would've been the first time since 1993 (and the first since the '50s at fenway). yeah, they still lost, but at least it wasn't a no-hitter or a shutout.
and now i'm starting to really think that i jinxed ellsbury (luckily alex is getting out of his funk), 'cause obviously he didn't get a hit last night, and the past few days he's been 0-fer-ing (i'll say this once, i'll say it again, he's pulling a me! i'm serious!). although that catch was pretty sweet.
and here's a picture from the other night's royals game (that position sure looks uncomfortable). i didn't realize how truly awesome he did (i was in dick's sporting goods looking for shoelaces and i was reading the scores on espn on the giant tv above the shoe section and i got all excited about the homie that i didn't see how awesome in other ways he was)... ooh! 1 sentence recap time!
*in another sportscasterish tone* in monday night's game, royals' third baseman alex gordon had a long-awaited offensive blast, going 3 for 4 with a 2-run home run.
(that one wasn't quite as good as the last one, but as you know, it's been a while...)
